Fairies Do Ride Teeter-Totters

Submitted by Tea Granny on Wed, 03/06/2013 - 11:38

This was a very quick project. Only took 5.5 hours from start to finish, including dragging out and putting all the tools away afterwards!

I left the teeter-totter unfinished, not sure how it will make it through the winter. I may decide to paint it this summer.

I used a length of copper pipe for the bolt to ride through, along with some washers between all the pivot points. This should help keep the boards from wearing away over time.

This has been the BEST outdoor toy around! It gets used EVERY day in the nice weather.

Thanks Ana for the great plans!
